, just five weeks after president barack obama was inaugurated, the defense department lifted the ban and one week after the ban was lifted, the following thursday, the media was allowed to cover that solemn return ceremony for the first time in a long time. and maybe it is because we did go so long as a country without seeing images like this that we are a little rocked back on our heels when we do see these images. today was the transfer ceremony at andrews air force base just outside washington, d.c., at which the bodies of the four americans killed in libya this week were brought home. it was the middle of the afternoon on an unusually busy news day with a million other things going on in american news and politics, but it was like time just stopped. >> we will wipe away our tears, stiffen our spines, and face the future undaunted. and we will do it together. protecting and helping one another just like sean, tyrone, glen, and chris always did. may god bless them and grant their families peace and solace, and may god continue to bless the united states of america. >> greater love
to a person of the opposite sex. that is the section of the law that president obama has declined to defend. at the house, they have created the bipartisan legal adviser group that is during the defense of these laws since the administration has advocated its role in defending it. -- has abdicated its role in defending it. there are several cases that have petitions for the court to decide amongst. the first one, probably the front runner, is a combination case of massachusetts nurses the department of human services. -- massachusetts vs. the department of human services. the equal protection clause violates the defense of mayor jack -- or the defense of marriage at-the people protection clause because there is no rational basis for it does not pass scrutiny. the idea of which level of scrutiny it must pass is a question. but they are happy to argue both. this case is interesting because justice kagen was involved at the district court level during her confirmation level where it came out. her office had been involved in the internal discussion of the strategy of the case, so she will be re

to conflict with the position of president obama, at least not publicly and that the u.s. and israeli governments do share a common goal. and i should say this too. the israeli prime minister, before embarking to the united states, made remarks briefly yesterday on the holiest day, right before the holiest day in the jewish calendar, yom kippur. he said this speaking about mahmoud ahmadinejad speaking at the united nations on that very same day. and i quote. on this day when we pray to be inscribed to the book of life a platform was given to a dictatorial regime who tries at every step to sentence us to death. it is position of the israeli prime minister if not stopped iran will developed enriched-uranium that could be used to make a bomb as early as spring of 2013. we expect him to elaborate on that in just the next few moments. megyn. megyn: david lee miller, thank you so. there was, as we've always heard from iran some bellicose language from its leader in the united nations. israel will have the chance to respond after mr. netanyahu speaks, we will be joined live right here for re

two vastly different presidents, george w. bush, and barack obama when it comes to this conflict. the most important continuity. both have said we are at war. both have side we are at war with al-qaeda and its affiliates. i was watching president obama's inauguration, and carefully looking for signals with regard to this very fundmental thing, and he actually said we are a nation at war. that was somewhat satisfying for someone from my background and point of view. it's not definitive. nobody argued we're at war in iraq or afghanistan. i wanted evidence he believed that we were at war with the groups that attacked us on september 11th. .. he would use law enforcement authorities but he would not limit himself just to law enforcement authorities. he would actually use his authority sounds commander-in-chief to wage war against a foreign enemy. i'm sure you all remember in 2009 after just a few weeks in office president obama was awarded the nobel peace prize. by and large i thought it was awarded because he wasn't president bush and the europeans wanted to confirm that fact.

, barack obama saying that he doesn't really consider egypt an ally or an enemy at this point, that it really is time will tell, this is a work in progress. that really is kind of a stunning change of position from the white house perspective. >> reporter: i think that that statement took many people by surprise and shocked them a great deal. part of the anti-u.s. sentiment, and there is an anti-u.s. sentiment in the clashes today and in the protests on tuesday and in the various countries where the protests are taking plaes, the u.s. has been -- egypt has been a major ally for the u.s. to the extent that five different u.s. administrations supported our dictator, mubarak. i think the white house realized, because over the past few minutes i've been reading statements, the white house realized what a shocking statement that was and it looks like they're trying to back pedal from this idea that egypt has been demoted as an ally. i think everybody right now feels how sensitive the situation is and understands this political jockeying for power and again to reiterate, it's -- the
and who is in office and who is in charge, but the people running for office, obama would they would need more time to make sure things are going to continue to improve for romney saying need to go in a completely different direction. what can be done >> they all get fact check to death. its a good question. there is a bit of truth in all of them and in the context is where you get shades of gray. did they put the context the way you would of or i would have, that is where the games get played. in the short run, the things that get done politically, the laws that get past do have an impact and in the long run, the economic forces tend to will out. if you create a bad incentive, you may not see it right away because there is something else creating noise in the short run. that is why economists need the data for a long time. they have to weed out the factors that have to capture that long run trend. what they do does matter, but there are limits to what they can do it in a single economic cycle and sometimes they will do the right thing and you don't see a big impact right away. bill clint
of different speech in him and president obama. both iran and obama believe in supporting the opposition. the administration -- but romney and obama believe in supporting the opposition. i think this administration has recognized that the most important thing we can do is create a unified political opposition so that the when the sovereign regime falls, we will have a transition as soon as possible. without a clear exit strategy, which by the way it romney said it is how he would think about military affairs, the president understands we need to keep all options on the table and be cautious about it. there are many ways to make the situation worse, rather than better. we want to get the diplomatic contacts read so that there can be a smooth transition while also -- diplomatic context so that there can be a switcsmooth transition. this administration has been at the forefront on putting pressures on the regime. i am not sure that romney will read position is that much different. >> i will open it up to questions from the press. >> one of the country that was mentioned was -- i guess the q
